    The term Holodomor (death by hunger, in Ukrainian) refers to the starvation of millions of Ukrainians in 1932–33 as a result of Soviet policies. The Holodomor can be seen as the culmination of an assault by the Communist Party and Soviet state on the Ukrainian peasantry, who resisted Soviet policies.

    Stalin ordered the collectivization of agriculture. The majority of Ukrainians, who were small-scale or subsistence farmers, resisted. The state confiscated the property of the independent farmers and forced them to work on government collective farms. The more prosperous farmers (owning a few head of livestock, for example) and those who resisted collectivization were branded kulaks (rich peasants) and declared enemies of the state who deserved to be eliminated as a class. Thousands were thrown out of their homes and deported.

    In 1932, the Communist Party set impossibly high quotas for the amount of grain Ukrainian villages were required to contribute to the Soviet state. When the villages were not able to meet the quotas, authorities intensified the requisition campaign, confiscating even the seed set aside for planting and levying fines in meat and potatoes for failure to fulfill the quotas. Special teams were sent to search homes and even seized other foodstuffs. Starving farmers attempted to leave their villages in search of food, but Soviet authorities issued a decree forbidding Ukraine’s peasants from leaving the country. As a result, many thousands of farmers who had managed to leave their villages were apprehended and sent back, virtually a death sentence. A law was introduced that made the theft of even a few stalks of grain an act of sabotage punishable by execution. In some cases, soldiers were posted in watchtowers to prevent people from taking any of the harvest. Although informed of the dire conditions in Ukraine, central authorities ordered local officials to extract even more from the villages. Millions starved as the USSR sold crops from Ukraine abroad.

    Poignant commemoration of Holodomor tragedy in Regina

    13 per cent of Saskatchewanians trace their roots to Ukraine. This year, incidentally, is the 125th anniversary of the first immigration from what’s now Ukraine to this part of Canada. And after the story of the Holodomor was brought to the attention of the provincial government, the legislative assembly voted in 2008 to make this the first jurisdiction in North America to officially commemorate the tragedy.


    This year, there is a full week commemorating the Holodomor. And in 2015, local donors arranged for a duplicate of the Bitter Memories of Childhood statue in Wascana Centre, along Lakeshore Drive.
    People have warmed to it. “Not a week goes by without flowers and scarves and other things being deposited on it,” said Gawdyda.
    Monday’s ceremony inside the Legislative Building saw the lighting of a single candle remembering the famine’s victims.
    On Saturday, the week’s last day, those marking it are asked to light a single candle, and observe a moment of silence.



    Wreaths are laid at the Holodomor statue in Wascana Centre after the annual Holodomor (or Ukrainian famine-genocide) commemoration ceremony at the nearby Saskatchewan Legislative Building.

    University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon - Ukrainian Students' Association placed bundles of wheat around campus. This was done to remember and honour those who perished in the 1932 - 1933 genocide known as the Holodomor.
